Treasurer of Australia Jim Chalmers joins Mark Kenny and Marija Taflaga to discuss the future of Australia’s economy and society.

Despite the simultaneous and interconnected crises ravaging the global economy, can Australia find a way forward that leaves the country stronger?

How can the economy support a more robust and inclusive democracy? And what legacy does the new treasurer want to leave?

On this first episode of Democracy Sausage for 2023, the Hon Dr Jim Chalmers MP joins Professor Mark Kenny and Dr Marija Taflaga to discuss Australia’s economic future and his forthcoming essay in The Monthly, ‘Capitalism after the crises’.

The Hon Dr Jim Chalmers MP is Treasurer of Australia and Member for Rankin.

Dr Marija Taflaga is the Director of ANU Centre for the Study of Australian Politics and a Lecturer at the ANU School of Politics and International Relations.

Mark Kenny is a Professor at the ANU Australian Studies Institute. He came to the university after a high-profile journalistic career including six years as chief political correspondent and national affairs editor for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and The Canberra Times.

Democracy Sausage with Mark Kenny is available on Acast, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts.
